The Western Australian Government is calling for design and construction proposals from industry to deliver the $86 million Roe Highway (Kalamunda Road) – Grade Separated Interchange upgrade.
The joint Australian and State Government-funded project aims to improve traffic flow through the intersection, which sees almost 60,000 vehicles pass through it each day – 14 per cent of which are heavy vehicles.
The upgraded interchange will eliminate one of the last remaining signalised intersections on the highway.
Works also include a shared path on the eastern side of the highway.
Western Australian Minister for Transport Rita Saffioti said the project was one of many improvements underway for the transport network in Perth’s eastern corridor.
“Construction of a dual carriageway on Reid Highway between Malaga Drive and Altone Road is progressing well as part of NorthLink WA, while the New Lord Street project linking Reid Highway and Gnangara Road is on track for completion in late 2018,” Ms. Saffioti said.
“We have also called for proposals from industry to complete the dual carriageway on Reid Highway, between Altone Road and West Swan Road, in early 2019.
The state government said the interchange project will create around 600 jobs, with construction expected to start in mid-2019 and finish in the second half of 2020.
